We Have the Power to Impact The Lives of Our Local Youth
Located in Altoona, PA and founded in 2019 by Jeremiah Witherspoon, a former professional boxer and current coach of amateur and professional fighters in Blair County and Central Pennsylvania.
L.O.T. is a program for adolescents ages 11-17, based in Blair County in Pennsylvania. It is a mentoring program to provide educational opportunities, physical fitness, recreational opportunities, and spiritual outlets. The adolescents will also be encouraged to develop leadership qualities, life skills and individual growth and community involvement.
The program director will initially meet with the parent(s) of the youth to discuss our goals for them and to discuss the parents goals. There will be discussion concerning behavior goals and the strengths and needs of the youth. The program director will assess what the youth needs after the discussion.
Our mentoring program will build a better youth through boxing, fitness, communication, leadership abilities and other activities. There will be round table discussion regularly with the youth.
At drop off the parents are asked to talk to the program director about any behavioral concerns both positive and negative in order to provide the needed content for the youth.
There will be trips to participate in various activities as scheduling permits.
The program will meet twice a week on Wednesday and Friday from 5 pm to 7 pm, with an occasional Saturday meet for any specialty events. The program will be held at the Scorchin’ Boxing Facility, located in Altoona, PA.
